Hong Kong

The things you notice when you're sorting through your photos. I could see him sitting under a tree, legs crossed in the lotus position, striving for nirvana. Though maybe he'd have to finish scaling and slicing his fish first.

Jardine House, Hong Kong

Located at 1 Connaught Place, Central, Jardine House was the original Hong Kong skyscraper. Built in 1972 as the third incarnation of the headquarters of the Jardine Matheson company, one of the original Hong Kong trading houses, it was apparently nicknamed the Building of 1000 Assholes when it first opened.

Wartime Bunker off Tai Tam Road

Here's a cool little piece of hidden Hong Kong that I found with the help of Gwulo. It's located off Tai Tam Road in the south of Hong Kong Island and is another of the many overgrown war remnants that give an insight into Hong Kong's increasingly hidden wartime past.

Deep fried spring rolls

I wrote recently about Amporn Thai Food restaurant at Kowloon City Cooked Food Centre. It’s pretty great.

If you thought Hong Kong's cooked food centres were all just about sweet and sour pork and fried noodles, it's time to broaden your palate and think again. These rowdy food-fests may be among the best places in Hong Kong to find yourself some authentic Cantonese cuisine, but if you know where to look ...

Vanity Plates User Submissions Call

I may no longer be able to keep it going myself on a regular basis, but that doesn't mean the hunt for Hong Kong vanity plate gold need end so soon. As this shot from Tom proves, the gold is still out there, but it's up to you now to find.

Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong

If Hong Kong is the city of skyscrapers, no other building embodies this journey skywards more than the Bank of China Tower. An icon of the city and seemingly everybody's favourite Hong Kong high-rise, the Bank of China Tower has had almost twenty-five years in which to cement its place as Hong Kong's most recognisable building.
